Event description
West London Research Conference

About this Event

The topics to be covered in the conference will include the interface between physical and mental health, service user involvement in research, and perinatal mental health. We are hoping to inspire you to feel that research is important, accessible and achievable and to highlight good examples of clinically-based research and the story behind these projects. The aim of the day is to inspire you to feel that clinical problems translate into research questions and that, with the right support, these become research studies which yield results to change practice for the better.

Poster competition - if you would like to present a poster and enter the poster competition please email for further information.
